In contrast to the exuberant Verna, the Honda City appears more routine and businesslike in its attitude, and its machinery list isn't as extensive either. The Honda City continues to be the superior vehicle to drive and be driven in.
Whether you love it or hate it, the Verna's unconventional appearance is striking thanks to its front and rear 'in-your-face' LED lighting. The Honda City is generally bigger and taller compared to the Verna, and its beautiful style probably appeals to a wider audience.
Due to its twin-screen setup with one for the entertainment system and the other for the instrument cluster, the Verna's interior exudes a techy air. In contrast, the Honda's interior design seems very ordinary, in part because of the outdated 8-inch touchscreen.
The front seats of Verna pamper you with heating and ventilation features, and the driver's seat has some electrical functions, making it a comfortable place to be in. While Honda’s cabin seems lighter and airier. The seats are also quite beautifully contoured and padded, making them more comfortable to sit in.
The rear has a ton of space and is even wider and has more headroom than the City. The Verna's back seats are no longer as 'cramped' as they were in past iterations. With a slightly slanted floor, room for the middle passenger's feet, and three non-adjustable headrests, City's back seat continues to set the standard for comfort.
These vehicles are propelled by continuously variable gearboxes (CVTs) coupled to 1.5-liter gasoline engines. However, there is a night and day difference in how they function. The Verna's engine seems to be quieter and more polished in this comparison.
In our testing, the City accelerates to 100 kph from a stop more quickly than the Verna, taking less than 2 seconds.
Although the Hyundai Verna's petrol-automatic's ex-showroom costs of Rs 14.24 lakh-16.20 lakh make it somewhat more expensive than the City (Rs 13.62 lakh-15.97 lakh), it is nevertheless loaded with a long list of goodies.
